About the MSI MPG Z690 FORCE WIFI Motherboard
18+1+1 Phases Power Design
Unleash and sustain maximum performance with an aggressive VRM design built with a total of direct 18 +1+1 power phases. Combining 2x 8-pin power connectors and exclusive Core Boost technology, MSI MPG Z690 FORCE WIFI motherboard is ready to sustain heavy daily work.
Lightning Gen 5 PCI-E
MSI Lightning Gen 5 PCI-E represents the bandwidth of a x16 interface to 128GB/s, which is double of the speed of the previous generation. MSI MPG Z690 FORCE WIFI motherboards adopted the advanced SMT(Surface Mount Technology) PCI-E slot to diminish interference and electrical noise, fully supporting higher bandwidth and faster transfer speeds of PCI-E 5.0 signal.
Fast and Future-ready Storage
MSI Z690 motherboards support all the latest storage standards, which allows users to connect any ultra-fast storage device. Higher efficiency makes your work easier.
Latest DDR5 Memory
A huge step of DDR performance enhancement with the latest DDR5 memory. Combines with dedicated SMT welding process and MSI Memory Boost technology, MSI MPG Z690 FORCE WIFI is ready to deliver the world class memory performance.
M.2 SHIELD FROZR
World’s fastest SSDs can start to lower performance when getting hot. Part of the motherboards heatsink design, M.2 SHIELD FROZR is the next generation M.2 thermal solution to avoid this by offering the best thermal protection to make sure that SSD maintains maximum performance.
The PCB design has been optimised for higher bandwidth and faster transfer speeds, which is also beneficial for reliable circuit transmission.
